The lusciousness of this breakfast pudding doesn't come from heavy cream, half-and-half, or full-fat yogurt, rather the richness is created when tiny chia seeds absorb many times their weight in liquid, expanding to create a viscous, protein- and fatty acid-rich thickener that lends lots of body to low-fat milk. Fresh berries easily become suspended in this puddinglike mixture that is loaded with filling goodness. A spoonful of matcha green tea powder (also called gunpowder tea) may be added as a nutrient-rich, eye-opening addition to this morning pudding.
